Attraction details
Owner description: Just minutes from Columbia, Rock Bridge Memorial State Park gives visitors the chance to scramble, hike and bicycle through a scenic environment – and lets them peek into Missouri’s underworld. The park contains some of the most popular hiking trails in the state and also offers solitude while hiking in the Gans Creek Wild Area. Visitors can also see a large cave system with its rock bridge, sinkholes, a spring and underground stream at the Devil's Icebox. You can explore Connor's Cave in the light of the opening for a taste of the underground world.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

Stopped here while traveling to stretch our legs and get some fresh air. Nicely kept "trails" (wooden walkway with lots of stairs), family/pet friendly. We spent about an hour - took the Rock Bridge trail to Connor's Cave. Glad we stopped!

Aside from the pinnacles, this is probably where everyone else goes to experience the outdoors in Columbia. The cave is cool but aside from that, it’s just a trail in the woods

We go with family hiking the well marked trails. Only issue it is often very busy and parking.is an issue.
Wonderful grounds and walkways.

Worth the trip to see this. Be sure to take your head lamp and waterproof shoes and explore the underground cave.

What a real fun park to visit. Many trails for long or short walks available. We just had time to visit the Devil’s Icebox. A great experience! 90 degrees outside but the Icebox was true to its name ! Nice and cold !
It is not easy to walk through the cave. There is water running through it so be prepared for wet shoes in case you slip. Also, bring a flashlight as it is pitch black in the cave. Watch your head!
Please , do not bring your dog down there. Is not not an environment for pets. Unfortunately, some do not read the sign.
